The Compliance Authority does not take kindly to dissidents. Particularly dissidents who have managed to escape their grasp, not once, but twice. Things are about to get a lot more dangerous for Robin, Jace, and their team. Making it all the more urgent to figure out what, if anything, Nathan is hiding - as well as if their convenient allies are, in fact, allies. Because there's only one thing Robin can be sure of right now.... The farther they walk along this tightrope of a life they've found themselves trapped in, the thinner the line becomes.

Robin never could have imagined that things would go so wrong. Never could have dreamed they would find what they found within that innocuous-looking building. And now it’s too late: They’ve seen what they’ve seen, and there is no time to talk. No time to even think. Not with the caliber of people who are now on their trail. Fleeing is their priority - but even if they escape, it’s uncertain whether they will ever truly be free.

This book was full of action and intense. The characters are more fully developed, and their relationships are starting to grow. The action really helps to promote the plot of the story.

I really enjoy this series, but it is taking to long to get to the meat of the action and I often find myself wanting to skip ahead sometimes. I like this series, but it is a little predictable. I LOVED the Gender Games and have also enjoyed this one, minus all the sidebar conversations

She used to work for the US government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn't even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning. Now she rarely stays in the same place or uses the same name for long. They've killed the only other person she trusted, but something she knows still poses a threat. They want her dead, and soon.

Meyer delivers with a female counterpart to Jack Bauer or Jason Bourne. The book moves at a fast pace with unexpected plot twists. Attention to detail helps set this book apart, sometimes it does make the story slow a bit. Great read if you like thriller novels.

After the sudden death of her husband, Sheryl Sandberg felt certain that she and her children would never feel pure joy again. "I was in 'the void,'" she writes, "a vast emptiness that fills your heart and lungs and restricts your ability to think or even breathe." Her friend Adam Grant, a psychologist at Wharton, told her there are concrete steps people can take to recover and rebound from life-shattering experiences. We are not born with a fixed amount of resilience. It is a muscle that everyone can build.

This book really helps one to see how to respond to friends who are experiencing tough times and /or grief. The content in this book is beneficial to everyone because we all at some time in our lives experience significant loss.
